Here’s a small jewelry booth idea that enables you to display a lot of jewelry in a tiny space – shown here in action at an art gallery:
In the photo above, the table measures 3.5 feet wide by 2 feet deep.
The vertical jewelry display board behind the table is made from PVC pipes that were cut to size, spray-painted black, and made into two frames with PVC connectors:
For the display boards, rectangular floral foam boards (sturdy styrofoam) from a craft store were cut to fit within the top section of each PVC frame:
The floral foam display boards were covered in a tan colored felt fabric, with felt strips to wrap around the PVC frames.
After wrapping around the PVC frames, the felt strips fastened with Velcro.
The two PVC frames were lashed side-by-side lengthwise with black zip ties to hold the frames together into one double display board unit.
The zip ties also acted as hinges so the double display could fold in half lengthwise for transporting and storage.
The PVC pipe display board is not attached to the gallery wall. Instead, it’s tightly sandwiched between the table and the wall, with the bottom of the PVC frame resting on the floor.
The entire display board and frame are very lightweight, and probably too flimsy for outdoor jewelry shows.
Necklaces, bracelets, and earring cards in mini-ziplock bags are pinned to the display board.
On the tabletop, necklace display busts, hand displays, jewelry trays, and a small wooden earring trunk add elegance while keeping the small space organized.
When you need a small jewelry booth to fit into a tiny space (which is often the case for trunk shows, home jewelry parties, and gallery showings), think vertically!
Use the space above your tabletop to your best advantage.
